Praying with us - Praying with Mary


Praying with Mary

Draw us after thee, Virgin Mary. We will walk in your footsteps.
Mother, bless ourpilgrimage of faith;
clothe us with your love, clothe us with your scapular.
Form us interiorly so we may be conformed
to the image of Jesus Christ.

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, 'Woman, this is your son. Then to the disciple he said, 'This is your mother.' And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.
(Jn 19,25-27)

Flower of Carmel, tall vine, blossom-laden;
splendour of heaven, child-bearing, yet maiden;
none equals thee.
Mother so tender, whom no man didst know,
on Carmel's children thy favours bestow;
Star of the Sea!
